Stretch marks appear on the body when the middle layer of skin known as the dermis is stressed more than it can tolerate – losing the shape and elasticity it is designed to maintain. As a result, visible marks on areas of skin appear including red stripes (striaerubrae), bands on the belly from pregnancy (striaegravidarum) or distinct lines on the shoulder or lower back (striaedistensae).

Here is what you should do with it:
1)Gently exfoliate the skin that has stretch marks on it. Try using oatmeal soap or something like that. Do not use any harsh exfoliants, or you might make things worse.
2)Wash your hands, scoop some shea butter and rub it between your palms to warm it up. This will make it much easier to apply.
3) With firm circular motions, apply the butter to your skin. Massage it in for some time in order for it to sink deeper into the skin.
4)Do this treatment up to three times each day to achieve the best results. You should definitely do this before you go to bed, as the skin regenerates while you are sleeping. This way, you will help it to regenerate quicker and more effectively.
Shea butter is a great tool for keeping the skin with stretch marks moisturised and healthy. However, be aware that, just as other remedies, it does not guarantee that the stretch marks will disappear or fade immediately. Be patient, and you will see the results soon enough.
